A number of the lodges of New Zealand have either their own world class course set in outstanding locations or are close to some of New Zealand’s premier courses and golf resorts.

Take a helicopter from the lodge and land on a glacier or peer into a volcano, take the plunge with white water rafting or combine a hikingjetboating-scenic flight into the wilderness.
